This is our resident skunk, at least I think it's the same one - how would you know? We know one has been here ever since we moved in over 3 years ago. We saw mama leading babies around last year.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Thank you Christine.
She was most of the time laying flat out in the foliage going for bugs. The foliage is fairly thick for about a foot deep then it thins for the next foot of height. It's amazing how she could disappear so well. If I didn't know she was there, she just looked like a innocuous white spot until she lifted up & moved to a new area. My dh with eagle eyes was the one to spot her & alert me otherwise I'm sure I would never have known.

I must admit, I've never seen any skunks but I've smelled them quite a few times. Hilarious!

My dh is has a good eye too. The other day he pointed out a mother raccoon with babies trailing behind crossing our pasture. I would never have seen them.
